: The Wednesday Play: The Connoisseur

by Hugo Charteris
[Starring] Derek Francis as G.C. Stoupe, Rosalie Crutchley as Pauline Tenterden,
Michael Goodliffe as The Rev. Adrian Tenterden, Richard O'Sullivan as Christopher Tenterden, Ian Ogilvy as Viscount Ballantyne, Rosalie Westwater as Martha Stoupe

Tonight's play tells of George Stoupe, a housemaster at Bath College, a famous old public school cast in the traditional mould.
Stoupe is a connoisseur of antiques... and boys.
The house he runs contains not only a remarkable collection of objets d'art, but also a selection of boys chosen for their athletic, intellectual, and parental qualities. Viscount Ballantyne, for example, is a fine sportsman, and young Harry Benson is not only a delightful soprano, but the son of a successful antique dealer with a large business... and Stoupe's retirement is imminent.
Only one boy doesn't really fit in - Christopher Tenterden, captain of the house and son of another housemaster at the school. In an excess of disgust, Christopher exposes the goings-on in the house to one of the more sensational newspapers...
The author, Hugo Charteris, sets his play in the same world as his many successful novels, the most recent of which, The Indian Summer of Gabriel Murray, was published this month.

: Contrasts: Strange Journey

A series of music and arts features.

The Surrealists derided common sense. They aimed to derail the mind. What appealed to them was what was hidden in the shadows of reason. Accidents must happen.
This film by the distinguished Belgian director, Paul Haesaerts, explores the sensational world of the unconscious in art, and includes the work of Rene Magritte, Paul Delvaux and Max Ernst.
Commentary written by Robert Melville.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
